Donald Trump made an appeal to black voters on Tuesday by pointing out what should be obvious - Democrats have abysmally failed the black community.

"The Democratic Party has failed and betrayed the African-American community," he said.

Trump called for the riots in Milwaukee over the death of Sylville Smith, at the hands of a black police officer, to stop.



The main victims of these riots are law-abiding African-American citizens living in these neighborhoods," he told the crowd in West Bend, Wisconsin. "It's their job, it's their homes, it's their schools and communities which will suffer the most as a result. There's no compassion in tolerating lawless conduct for anyone."

And he took direct aim at his opponent.

"We reject the bigotry of Hillary Clinton which panders to and talks down to communities of color and sees them only as votes, not as individual human beings worthy of a better future," he said. "She doesn't care at all about the hurting people of this country, or the suffering she has caused them."

Many black voters, even some who don't support Trump, agree that Democrats have failed their community.

Trump is right; Democrats do take Black folks for granted. Undeniable. And, because Black folks allow it.

all you people of color consider this - you know the Dims have screwed you over for decades. If you vote for Trump and he screws you over you are no worse off than you are now. On the other hand, if he can deliver on even some of his goals you are miles ahead of where you are now.

Succinct and to the point--"The main victims of these riots are law-abiding African-American citizens living in these neighborhoods," he told the crowd in West Bend, Wisconsin. "It's their job, it's their homes, it's their schools and communities which will suffer the most as a result."

There are two very important and divergent facts here--since the Civil Rights Act of 1964, opportunities denied to African Americans previously were opened by law and many became successful mainstream citizens--secondly, NOTHING can erase the past injustices--nothing.

All very true, the Democrat party has fostered what I call "Entitlement Slavery" over the past 50 years.....all as part of LBJ's intent.

I wish the Black Community could see through the Propaganda the Media directs their way. The Media has destroyed the Black Community with their Divide and Conquer Strategies. And has brainwashed them with this helpless, Victims, persecution narrative.
The Democrats and the Media are genociding Blacks in America ...

Black communities have been used abused and reused. It will take many speaches and action to have people respond. History is against it.

The democratic party is the lesser of two evils.
